I love trying new products so when Jessica at Kiss Me Organics reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try their Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder, I said yes. They are sold exclusive on Amazon. Their matcha powder is 100% organic and tested for purity. I drink green tea occasionally, and this matcha powder is like amped up green tea. It has 137 times the antioxidants of a cup of brewed tea. In addition to sending me a bag of their matcha powder to try, they also have a huge recipe booklet on their website with tons of recipes using matcha powder–everything from baking to smoothies to entrees [matcha pizza, anyone?] to lattes. I was surprised to hear that mixing matcha in plain water was the most popular way people enjoy matcha on a regular basis!
So far, I have only tried the matcha powder one way: in a latte. Making this ‘latte’ was SO simple… all I did was mix 1 teaspoon of the matcha powder with 1/3 cup hot water, then add 1 cup warm milk and 1 teaspoon honey and mix until frothy. If I had a milk frother this would have looked SO much better, but regardless–it still tasted delicious. Since this was my first time trying matcha powder, I wasn’t sure what to expect but it basically tasted like a high quality green tea. I drank my latte in the evening, around 7 pm and still was able to go to bed around 10:30/11 pm as usual, so the caffeine/energy component of this powder was not too intense. I look forward to trying this matcha powder in more recipes in the future. Since each recipe uses a negligible amount, the bag should last me a long time. Oh, and while I enjoyed the product itself, its packaging is my only complaint. The bag is supposed to be resealable, but when I opened my bag it tore and kind of came apart, so I have to use a ziploc bag for storage. Not a big deal but the easy opening wasn’t as easy as it could have been. I hope you have a chance to try this product too! Thanks, Kiss Me Organics, for the chance to try your matcha powder!
